Re: Structured wiring questions for new (old) home
1 - Since you aren't remodelling, there's no advantage to do the rewiring now. So leave it as is, if it works fine, you'll have saved your time from a currently useless upgrade.
2 - Cat6, it's like 80$ for a 1000F box. You COULD use the cat5e for short runs near the networking gear to leave as much cat6 remaining for the future.
3 - Put some cover above the gear to avoid it getting wet if there is a leak. Location is key.
